Celebrity style stalking always has its perks. For today, I’m taking notes from Gwyneth Paltrow. The actress recently showcased a fresh way to style the prim and proper waistcoat. She stepped out in a black tailored piece while visiting a high-end salon in Beverly Hills on Tuesday. Gwyn wore the vest with a pussy-bow blouse and matching structured shorts, but unexpectedly punctuated the dressy combo with white sneakers.

The look was sporty and elegant, but also casual and androgynous. It was a very interesting getup, one that I initially didn’t like, but eventually began to appreciate the more I looked at it.

Well, ladies, what do you think? Do you approve of the mix Gwyneth put together here? Would you wear her outfit with sneakers or would you rather team it with pointed high heels?

I like the gathered back detail of the vest, and I love how she dressed down the outfit with sneakers. Yes, I think she nailed the ensemble. But can you say the same?

Gwyneth’s vest is from Chloe, but I couldn’t find any deetz on her shorts. Her purse is obviously a Celine, while her sunnies are from Saint Laurent. And as for her green-paneled sneakers, they’re from Valentino.
